What Is Clinical Aromatherapy?
Clinical Aromatherapy Certification requires the practitioner to have a minimum of 300 hours of aromatherapy training, a familiarity with a minimum of 50 essential oils and their properties within a clinical framework.
This training allows the Clinical Aromatherapist to safely use essential oils in holistic healing, integrative medicine and to formulate blends to facilitate the healing of a variety of conditions.

Beth Branco, LMT
Growing up on the island of Bermuda, aromatic plants were part of my life from childhood. I remember going to the waterside cliffs by my house with Mom to pick wild parsley while the smells of fennel, sea purslane and the waves filled the air. Memories, of how Mom sending me to the mint patch to pick sprigs of mint for cooling tea, would fill my nose with the cool aromas of the moss, fern and the cool limestone bedrock where it grew. The fun of gathering wild nasturtium flowers to decorate the dining table with their colors and their sweet, spicy pungency. There were fruits, flowers and herbs everywhere.
I bought my first book on aromatherapy in my teens and was surprised by the intricacies of the chemistry involved. It was beyond me at the time. All I knew was that if something smelled that good, it had to be good for you. It’s taken me years to have the time to pursue this interest, but in the last decade I have been able to focus on it at last.
I started with an online class in 2016 but wasn’t satisfied. I wanted to have an in-person instructor until I felt confident in my research abilities. In 2017 I completed a 235 hour course in holistic aromatherapy to become a Certified Holistic Aromatherapist.
I took a little detour in 2021 to take a 13 hour course in incense, a topic which I will explore further in the future.
And in 2022 I completed an additional 125 hours through the Aromahead Institute with their Advanced Graduate program and am now a Certified Clinical Aromatherapist.
My fascination with the medicinal properties of aromatic plants shows no sign of abating.
Please consider coming in for a consult to see how these plants and their wonderful healing properties can work for you to support your health and wellness.
